I didn't connect with this plot as much as the first one and
good old crazy Grandma Mazur didn't come across the same to me either. I actually found her a bit annoying until that end bit.
I also wanted more of something to happen between Stephanie and Joe...
P.S. The continual mention of the word pocketbook was doing my head in. We're they popular in 1996? I was only five at the time and can't remember.
